Normal Noises
  • Hissing noise from the relief valve (when actuation during any steering maneuver)
  • Fluid bypassing through the poppets at full turn
  • System relief valve noise when required to actuate
  • Selected gears make a “growling” noise
Abnormal Noises
  • “Squealing” noise from steering pump (if pump is belt drive) may indicate the belts should be checked and tightened or replaced if necessary
  • “Clicking” noise made during the turn indicates some components may be loose and shifting under the load of the truck
  • Any change in the “normal” noise of the pump may indicate that air has gotten into the system or the fluid is low.
